MikeMee Posted August 27, 2019 Report Share Posted August 27, 2019 As per my other post (re: PDF size bloat after editing) I am a Nitro Pro 12 user in my workplace and finding it very useful to break down website articles into PDFs (via 'printing' them using Chrome). The Optimize PDF helps me to shrink over-sized PDFs and this works well, most of the time. However, the "unused fonts" deletion is a pain to use as there's a 1-in-3 chance that almost all of the main body of text will be displayed as a corrupted font. Code listings or such like aren't affected though, just the main text in the article(s) that I am trying to edit. I then have to go through every corrupted piece of text, double-click it, then change it to the *exact same font* it was using and it resets the text. However, this generates more bloat and I then have to re-optimise the PDF to get the file size back down to a smaller amount. To add "insult to injury", Nitro Pro really does struggle with "fi" in that it changes that combination to some unicode character instead. Which results in more editing as I then have to wander through all of the text, finding and replacing this Unicode character with the correct letters. (Unfortunately, my main PDF-editing machine, running Windows 7, is behind a corporate firewall so we don't have internet access, which means I can't send you the error reports).
